AOC & Philips soon with pink gaming monitors & Netflix integration?

At an event in Valencia, Stefan Sommer, Head of Global Marketing for the brands AOC and Philips Monitors, not only informed about the new models and past market developments, but also gave an exciting outlook.

The situation on the world market is currently difficult for monitors as well. Chips are in short supply, transportation from Asia to Europe is more difficult and expensive, and power restrictions in China are not making manufacturing any easier. Nevertheless, business was booming during the Corona pandemic, as everyone can surely imagine.

In addition to new monitors, two gaming mice and a headset were also unveiled today, expanding the existing peripheral products. As with other manufacturers, a complete ecosystem is to be created. And, of course, other target groups need to be addressed.

Pink monitors from Philips?

In the past, it was mainly the male gender that was interested in gaming, but that has been changing for several years. The proportion of female gamers is increasing and even if it is still far from 50 percent, the market is growing. This is a breach that is to be filled.

Philips has today for the first time presented gaming monitors that don’t look quite as aggressive as the models from AOC. But it won’t stop there, because they are already working on more design monitors in the gaming segment. There are no details yet, but they should appeal to women – so maybe they will be pink, like Razer‘s Quartz series.

Netflix streaming on monitors?

It’s hard to imagine TVs without Netflix, and these days it’s probably used more by younger people in particular than the built-in TV tuner. So although the actual TV reception is becoming less interesting, most still buy a TV instead of a monitor for the living room, although there are now also large monitors. These have a lower input lag, for example, which makes them more suitable for gaming with Playstation or Xbox.

To make monitors more interesting for the living room, the integration of services like Netflix is being worked on. This will certainly be particularly interesting as soon as Netflix really takes off with gaming. Then you won’t need a PC or a console, but can start gaming directly with the monitor.

Of course, there are no details and an exact schedule for the mentioned topics yet, but we can be curious about which features we will soon see in the monitors.
